You would hardly ever think of speeding on a lawn mower, but Honda is set to do that with the its new Mean Mower. Honda has unveiled the Mean Mower V2 with its 190-hp engine, which Honda hopes will be able to reach speeds above 150 mph.
Team Dynamics, Honda’s British Touring Car Championship partner created the Mean Mower V2, which follows in the footsteps of the original Mean Mower that took the record for the world’s fastest lawn mower in 2014. To set a new record, the team used more bespoke parts, more advanced materials, and 3D printing. The Mean Mower V2 also has almost double the power of the original, thanks to its 190-hp 1.0L four-cylinder engine that’s been borrowed from the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP motorcycle.
Honda also borrowed the clutch, ECU, six-speed transmission and full color LCD display from the Fireblade. Since it is technically a lawn mower and not a motorcycle, Honda used the front cowl, grass box and body panels from the Honda HF 2622 lawn tractor to create the Mean Mower V2. Even with its four-cylinder engine and ability to hopefully hit 150 mph, the Mean Mower V2 can still cut your lawn with its two additional batteries and electric motors.
